'Tell Me More' and Other Favorites


'Tell Me More' and Other Favorites
Oil on Wood
10"X10"
SOLD

Just seeing this stack of books on my bedside table is comforting. Kelly Corrigan, Mary Norris, Lydia Davis, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, Susan Orlean. Their words fill me up, lift me up, and stay with me, enriching my life no end.  I will remember what struck a chord and visit those pages again for a little pick-me-up when the time is right.  In the meantime, they are reminders that goodness and the creative spark are alive and well in the world, and that, too, is reassuring.

 Is it the time of year, or the time of life?  Or is it reading Susan Orlean's beautiful, "The Library Book" that has me swimming in memories of the past?
Her thoughts on memory and the meaning of life on page 92 and 93 are a reason to read the book, not to mention the bright red cover with gold lettering that beckons from the night stand at bedtime. 

"Our minds and souls contain volumes inscribed by our experiences and emotions; each individual's consciousness is a collection of memories we've cataloged and stored inside us, a private library of a life lived.  It is something that no one else can entirely share, one that burns down and disappears when we die.  But if you can take something from that internal collection and share it – with one person or with the larger world, on the page or in a story recited – it takes on a life of its own."

I am holding that thought as the days come and go like the ebb and flow of the tide that shifts the sands ever so slightly making what was, new again.

Monet Moment 3


Monet Moment 3
Oil on Wood
10"X10"


Monet and Mozart on a Sunday afternoon - a perfect combination. Memories of "Monet: The Late Years" at the de Young Museum and Mozart's music fill my studio, obliterating the woes of the world and my own petty grievances. The outside world melts away, leaving in its place a inner world of peace, beauty, and gratitude.
